SAVINGS ON SMALL CARGOES
Cancellation of Minimum Charge Rule

HELPS EVEEY LITTLE LOT
Itefusal of Western State Railway
Commissions to Adopt New Rale
Was Strong Influence
Savings of from IB cents to 11.15 on small
packages shipped from Omaha and other
Missouri river point will he made by the
cancellation of the new minimum charge
rule made by the railroads of the middle
This evidently represents the action of the
Western Trunk line committee and here
are a fejv of the savings which will be
realised by the merchants of the states who
order small packages from the Omaha

Old Halo Basins Charge.
The old rule was for baaing the minimum
charge of the actual weight of the shipment
at tariff rates with a minimum charge of
26 cents. Ths nsw ruls, which has been
cancelled, according to Chicago advices,
has been based on a minimum weight of 100
pounds, making It necessary for an Omaha
wholesaler to pay such rates as U 84 for a
packago of drugs weighting twenty pounds
to Sheridan, Wyo, or H 26 on bait a dosen
rolls f wall paper shipped to Cheyenne,
Wyo., when the former charge was 60 cents.
The Commercial club took the position
.it the new rute inflicted an unwarranted
.... rt aae and was inequitable In its applica
tion. The fact that the state railway com
missions of Nebraska, Iowa. Kansus and
Missouri liav firmly refused to adopt the
new rule Is a strong index of western senti
ment, and beside it has placed competing
markets on a different plane, as locally
within these states the old rule prevails,
while on Interstate traffic the new rule is
imposed. This meant that customers of
the Omaha wholesalers living Just over the
line in Wyoming and Colorado, as well as
In Iowa, had to pay the higher charges,
while towns and cities within a few miles.
' but still in Nebraska, had the advantage
of the old basis of rate-making.

Colonel W. F. Cody has written to the
sporting editor of The Bee that his show
has completely recovered from the effects
of the two cyclones which struck It in one
week, one at Pittsburg and one at Harrls
burg. Pa. He writes that It would be
pretty' hard on a man's nerves to have two
a week very often, but that they had
passed through the two, having the tents
all blown down twice, with but two people
"It Is pretty tough to have 1,000 women
